Campaign roundup: We must've missed the press release about Walsh making a council endorsement

This card has been going around East Boston in recent days. In Spanish, it says, "I'm with Stephen" (and at the bottom: "Authorized and paid for by the Friends of Stephen Passacantilli Committee").

The Walsh campaign hasn't gotten back to either me or David Bernstein - who reports Passacantilli hasn't gotten back to him, either. But it must be true; we'd hate to think we have another fake endorsement card on our hands.

Speaking of Passacantilli, NorthEndWaterfront.com has posted video of a candidate forum in Charlestown with him and challenger Lydia Edwards.

If tonight's mayoral debate isn't enough for you, several community groups have posted Walsh's and Jackson's written answers to questions on "Housing, development, displacement and gentrification."
